I am very new to Nintex, working on my second workflow and I've hit a wall in the best way to begin my workflow. On my initial Nintex form the user will select a report type and based on the report type selected they are assigned a series of tasks with other forms to complete, and once completed, sent to a manager for approval. My only issue is how do I begin my workflow. My initial thought was to create a variable and set a condition based on that variable, but my colleague believes Parallels will give us the desired outcome. I'm at a loss. Any ideas on this or any other workflow actions I should consider is greatly appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
The issue with parallels is the you need to be able to test for a condition or increment a counter to know when all tasks are complete. That would allow all tasks to go out at the same time.
Parallel actions is just that. things happening in parallel. You could do this in several different ways. I generally like to use the "SWITCH" action for this. If your Report type was a variable, you can set up condition under SWITCH to run difefrent actions based on the value.
Alternatively you could also use Run IF or SET CONDITION like you initally planned.
Thank you for the advice. I've researched more about the Switch action and I believe this could actually help me get the desired outcome. I am going to test and report back.
